I can’t wait to get back in business and help capture memorable images for you and your family SOON!!!
I will be following the Arizona Pledge for reopening that has been issued by the governor.
As we all know, our health and safety has been a priority the last few months due to COVID-19. Since I am a newborn, maternity and family photographer, cleaning policies have always been a priority at SUMMER ELIZABETH PHOTOGRAPHY . To keep things up to date, I wanted to review our studio policy as well as the cleaning standards that I have always used and new ones that I have added.
***All OUTDOOR SESSIONS ***
I am open for any booking after MAY 8TH for all outdoor sessions including family and maternity sessions by appointment only! (Social distance is still in practice during sessions and I will continue wearing mask during outdoor session)
***All IN STUDIO SESSIONS ***
For all "IN STUDIO & all NEWBORN sessions", as soon as this stay at home mandate is lifted, MAY 15TH , I will be back in business for all in studio sessions per appointment only.
SAFETY AND CLEANING POLICIES CURRENTLY USED:
Clean studio in between clients: I have always cleaned floors and surfaces after clients. I will be doing this even more as well as focusing on frequently touched surfaces like door handles.
Fabrics washed and sanitized after each baby: Every fabric, wrap, blanket that a baby touches is washed. I am adding UV light sensitization for items that can not go in the washing machine.
Regular hand washing and sanitizing: I have always washed my hands and used hand sanitizer before handling a baby. I now ask that clients wash hands upon arriving at the studio as well.
Sick Policy: If baby or someone in your family has a fever, I ask that you reschedule. This has always been a policy, but also an unspoken rule. So, I am encourage parents to reschedule when baby isn’t feeling good. I am now extending that to family members coming to the studio. Please contact me to reschedule if you or a family member have had a fever or any symptoms such as coughing in the past 48 hours .
EXTRA PRECAUTIONS IMPLEMENTED DUE TO COVID-19:
Only 1-2 client scheduled in the studio per week: and I will be allowing at least 48 hours between clients.
Mask and gloves worn by photographer for all studio sessions. It is recommended that parents wear a mask when they are not having their photos taken. Cloth masks and bandannas are ok.
Immediate family members only: I know this is going to be a difficult one. Some parent like to bring the grandparents or their nanny in to help with older siblings. However, this just puts too many extra bodies in the studio. Only immediate family members that live in your home will be allowed in the studio.
Also, no outside props allow in the studio during this time.
Things I ask of you as you enter the studio: Wash hands, remove shoes in the newborn room, wear as mask if you have one available.
All in all, as your photographer, I just want to ensure we gradually get thing back to normal, while ensure that everyone is happy, comfortable during their session with me and that we are continue practicing health and safety.
Please contact me today to start booking your session. Appointment sessions will be very limited so email or message me to schedule your session in advance today!
Lastly I would like to THANK YOU ALL for supporting my small business during this time.
